The Life Centre is a friendly haven, where yoga, Pilates and natural therapies inspire well-being in the communities of Notting Hill and Islington, and for our many visitors from further afield - we love how our community spirit lifts everyone working or visiting here.
We know how vital it is to have the best teachers and therapists and to offer a fantastic choice of yoga styles and therapies. We understand how to nurture relationships in our specialised pregnancy, and mums & babies classes, and how to ease newcomers into a regular practice, with our beginners’ courses. Plus, we run exciting workshops with resident and guest teachers whose experience and imagination brings a freshness to yoga on each occasion.
Our history Founded in Notting Hill 1993, The Life Centre is one of London’s oldest centres dedicated to yoga, Pilates and therapies. Over the years, many (maybe even most) of the UK’s top yoga and Pilates teachers have passed through the big wooden door of our Notting Hill centre, a beautiful quiet converted house and chapel – and several of our earliest students (and some of our original teachers and staff) are still Life Centre regulars. In 2011, we were delighted to open our second location, in Islington, a bright and cheery space with 2 large studios in a converted warehouse which offers a similarly broad range of classes to those in Notting Hill. In addition, in 2003, we set up our yoga education arm, Yogacampus, which offers one of the UK’s very top yoga teacher training programmes, as well as a wide range of other specialist courses and workshops.
